meet a blogger monday – Christopher from Domestic Daddy

Today we meet Christopher from Domestic Daddy. His blog showcases fine living at its best. This is one of those blogs that I just love to delve into as a little escape from everyday life in Ohio. In Christopher’s world it always seems as though the sun is shining, the temperature is around 75 degrees, and there’s a deliciously crafted drink waiting for you when you arrive home from a long day at the office. As Liz Lemon would say, “I want to go to there.”

According to his bio, Christopher has always had a strong domestic streak, but since he and his partner had their daughter Julia last year, He’s learned to keep projects simpler, faster and more fun. They may be simple, but they’re presented beautifully. And if you’re looking for a great cocktail for a party, be sure to check out his expansive collection of drink options.
